SOFTWARE & HARDWARE FOR THE SEO + Social Media Strategist
(UPDATED October, 2017) - Things change. My March, 2017 "social media photographer gear" article was live for no more than a few weeks when I dramatically changed my setup and workflow. So, let's do this. I'll post change-related blog posts when I make big changes to my set up, but my current list of gear and software will live here and I'll just link to this page anytime I refer to my gear or software in my articles.
HARDWARE & SOFTWARE TOOLS I AM CURRENTLY USING
This is the current gear I use on a day-to-day basis for my social media work. My flirtation with Windows Pro 10 is over (for now). However, I have adjusted my workflow enough that I can now make the move to Windows quickly and painlessly if necessary.
The items on this list have been tested in real-world situations on real jobs. This is the gear and the software I currently use to deliver award-winning results to my clients. I'm always focused on getting my workflow and hardware/software set up optimized so I can get as much done as possible, as quickly as possible with the lightest footprint possible. This means scaling back not only the hardware, but the number of programs I use to get my daily work done.
As always, everything on this list is highly recommended by me personally.
